Have you ever asked yourself What is the most valuable asset of a learning website?

Imagine having access to a website that has the key to academic achievement — assignment answers that will allow any student to get 100%. That’s exactly what I discovered during my most recent bug bounty adventure. Allow me to take you on an exciting behind-the-scenes trip to learn how I pulled off this digital theft

The experience was thrilling, demonstrating that all you need to become a successful hacker is a never-ending desire to break stuff, your browser, and Burp Suite.
